Chef’s Plate Review: Black Pepper Stir-Fry

Chef’s Plate is a subscription service that delivers chef-designed recipes and fresh ingredients each week. There is no subscription or membership fee to join. Their recipes begin at $10.95 per plate for the 2-Person Plan and $9.75 per plate for the Family Plan. A Year of Boxes pays for this subscription.

I have been testing out some other recipe delivery boxes lately and I keep coming back to Chef’s Plate. I wanted to point this out because I think it is important for you to know. Some of the other recipe delivery kits have features I love, but overall Chef’s Plate is better. Of all the boxes, Chef’s Plate continues to come up with the best recipes. There hasn’t been a recipe from Chef’s Plate we haven’t liked. I don’t know who is responsible for their menu creation, but one thing is for sure, they do an amazing job!

Here’s a look at one of the recipes I made this week:

Recipe: Black Pepper Stir-Fry


  • 350 g extra firm tofu
  • 5 oz jasmine rice
  • 1 yellow bell pepper
  • 3 oz snow peas

  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 thai red chili
  • 1 oz dry sherry wine
  • 1 oz tamari
  • 2 packs brown sugar
  • 1 g crushed black pepper

  • Prepare Ingredients: dry tofu and cut into 1-inch pieces, slice green onion, halve snow peas, slice yellow pepper, crush garlic, thinly slice red chili
  • Cook Tofu: heat oil in large pan, cook tofu for 6-8 minutes until lightly browned
  • Cook Vegetables: add more oil and garlic to pan, add yellow pepper and cook for 2 minutes, add snow peas and cook for 1 minute, remove from pan
  • Make Sauce: in same pan add tamari, sugar, sherry, pepper and 3 tbs water, cook for 1 minute, until thickened slightly
  • Plate & Serve: plate rice and stir-fry, drizzle with sauce, garnish with green onion and red chili


  • Tofu: I tossed my tofu in some corn starch before adding to the pan, I also added some pepper and salt
  • Red Chili: I chopped this very thin and added it to the pan when I was cooking the vegetables
